Masking heating pipes in a wall
Pipes, risers and radiators can be maskedIn several ways. A fairly popular option is to hide communications in the wall or in the field. It is important before such work to replace old pipes with new ones in the apartment. It is better to choose plastic communications. Otherwise there will be leaks, which are quite expensive to fix.
Sequence of pipe installation in the wall:
- First create a communication layout. This takes into account the cross-section of the pipes, the thermal insulation and the thickness of the wall layer, which must be sealed.
- Next, you need to make a hole in the wall. This is a special deepening, in which communications will be placed. Provide a place for bends and tees.
- The pipe is then insulated and mounted in the provided niche. Communications should be well secured, ensuring reliable fixation.
- Pipe mounts are made using brackets. For this, holes with dowels are made in the wall. They will fix the device.
- Next, you should check the operation of the pipes. Only after this, a niche is closed.
The second method involves the insertion of pipes in the floor. First, think about the layout scheme. In the floor is made a stunt. The top of the pipe should be slightly below the floor level. Next, the pipes are insulated, inspected and laid. Communications are closed with concrete mortar. For normal water circulation, a pump is to be installed.
The concrete screed should be of sufficient thickness so that the floor does not fail when used.
But while hiding the pipes, you should be prepared, in case of leakage, you have to disassemble the floor or the wall completely. That is why it is important to minimize all risks. It is necessary to select whole pipes or with a minimum number of joints. This option can be called a warm floor.
How to hide heating pipes in an apartment using the
box The box is considered a good option when the heating system is already installed. You can cover the cover with plastic, plasterboard, wood. Before work, make sure the integrity of the communications.
Required installation tools:
- Profile of metal;
- Screws with dowels;
- Material for the box;
- Scissors for metal.
First you need to make the frame of the box. The material of manufacture with the help of self-tapping screws is fixed. First, marking the location of communications. Take into account the dimensions of the pipes, the thickness of the material and the interval between the walls of the box and the communications.
Do not install the pipes close to the box. It is optimal to leave a distance of 3 cm.
Further build building profiles. Then fasten the guides. In order to fasten the profiles between them, cutters are used.
The angle profiles are then mounted. If the spacing between pillars exceeds 25 cm, then additional bridges should be made. If the height of the racks is more than 150 cm, horizontal jumpers are mounted. When the frame is ready, begin its design. With gypsum board before installation, chamfers are removed. But if in the future the tiling is provided, then this process can be omitted.
Begin the installation of the walls of the box from the side parts and move to the central. After installing the walls, the box must be decorated decoratively. To do this, apply tile, wallpaper paint.
If you want to hide batteries you can build a false wall. The technology is similar to the box. First a frame is made, then the walls are clad. A significant disadvantage of this method of decoration is the reduction in the area of the room. If there is no desire to tinker with the installation of these elements, then in the building store you can buy a ready-made box.
How to hide heating pipes in a private house by decorating
Hiding pipes in a wall or duct significantly reduces the heat transfer of heating elements. Sometimes these activities are contraindicated. That's why the decor of pipes is widely used to close communications.
In this version, you can safely listen to your imagination. The main thing is that the original effect harmoniously fit into the interior of the room. You can simply paint the pipes under the color scheme of the room.
Requirements for paints:
- Mechanical resistance;
- Thermal strength;
- Not toxic.
You can use jute or hemp rope as decoration. But this will reduce the heat transfer of the pipes. You can also try splitting bamboo. You can additionally decorate with branches and leaves, creating a branch. Highly located pipes can be closed with curtains.
Water-dispersion, acrylic or alkyd enamel is used for painting communications.
It is easier to hide pipes during the laying of communications. Then it becomes possible to mount the system as inconspicuously as possible. Also in this case, it becomes possible to make a warm floor.
Options than closing heating pipes
You can use decorative lining on pipes. This will help reduce the cost of heating system equipment. Sometimes this is a fairly economical option.
Decorative cover functions:
- Hiding batteries and pipes completely or partially;
- Protective function against hot radiators;
- Inscribing the box in the design room;
- Simplifies maintenance, as dust does not settle on the battery;
- Some variants of linings help to distribute heat evenly.
But when choosing a setting it is important to consider not only beauty, but also practicality. It is necessary that the material does not reduce heat emission and does not release toxic substances during heating. Plastic, for example, must withstand the exposure to high temperatures for a long time. It is also important that the material does not change color or shape during operation.
The decoration should not stand in the way of radiator heat transfer.
The decorative box must correspond to a number of parameters when used. The overlay should not take up much space, you should choose the most compact options. The fixing of the structure should be strong enough, but it should be possible to access the batteries. It is also important that the box is not too heavy.

In an apartment or private house, pipes can always be removed from the eyes, even if communications have already been laid. Drown risers and radiators can be under the ceiling, in a wall or field. Sewing communication can be in a special box. But you can simply decorate the pipes, wrapping around them a beautiful ribbon or rope.
